Exactly a year ago today, I gave birth to our little boy, Kalvin. He was a month early and took everyone by surprise; we had to stuff what we can get a hold of into our not so ready hospital bag! He had to stay first in NICU but thankfully, we were able to room […]
As a young family, Mimi, Katy and I have our own traditions. One of these is having Katy’s pictorial with the sunflowers come summertime in UP (University of the Philippines). This is our third year, and so far the easiest to shoot as Katy is now game for photographs and the bee costume which was […]
Our travel itinerary was a bit flexible. We thought of scheduling a day trip to Florence (it’s an hour and a half by express train from Rome) and we were glad we did. Florence has history, art, gelato and tons of vintage bikes! I’m currently restoring a couple of vintage bikes as a hobby and […]

Summer means sunflower season in UP Diliman. Summer means Katy Poo turns six months old. We put the two together and we have our summer pictorial with our little squirt. Our little hope for the flowers: Summer also means whipping out the inflatable pool… and having a whale of a time. Happy summer everyone!

Special thanks to Katy’s Uncle Gerson for editing this video. We’re so happy! Thank you also to Tito Bong and Tito CJ for the maternity footage […]
